[REVIEW] 2019 NEW Cosrx Shield Fit Snail Essence Sun SPF50+ PA+++

Cosrx Shield Fit Snail Essence Sun SPF50+ PA+++ Review

Cosrx Shield Fit Snail Essence Sun SPF50+ PA+++ was purchased by Cosmeperks.

As mentioned in my previous review of Cosrx Green Comfort Sun Cream, this is the second part to my thoughts on Cosrx’s latest sunscreen duo! This time around, it’s a formula that’s claimed to be geared towards those with drier skin types, or those who prefer their sunscreens with a more moisturizing finish. Now, while I don’t have super dry skin, I do face dehydration issues, so let’s see how it fares with that.

Cosrx Shield Fit All Green Comfort Sun SPF50+PA+++ Review

Cosrx Shield Fit All Green Comfort Sun SPF50+/PA++++ was purchased by Cosmeperks.

Cosrx has been releasing some interesting new products lately, and suffice to say, I’ve been feeling pretty left out from all the hype as I’ve only had experience using their older stuff. So when Nigama offered this review opportunity shortly after the release of the new Cosrx sunscreens, I immediately jumped to chance.

And as there were 1+1 launch offers, this is just the first half of my reviews for the sleek-looking sun products from Cosrx – the Snail Essence Sun (Moisture) coming up soon! So, without further ado, here’s my take on this new sunscreen aimed towards fellow sensitive-skinned folks.

[REVIEW] Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun SPF45/PA+++

Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun SPF45PA+++ Review

Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun SPF45/PA+++ Review:

If I’m not mistaken, in 2018, Missha repackaged their sunscreen line, giving them a more minimalist face lift. And while I’m not entirely sure if some of them were reformulated, I’ve checked the ingredients for this one, only to spot no difference – or none too drastic, at least. So, without further ado, let’s dive into this review, shall we?

[REVIEW] ETUDE HOUSE UV Double Cut Fresh Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA++++

ETUDE HOUSE UV Double Cut Fresh Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ Review

ETUDE HOUSE UV Double Cut Fresh Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ Review:

Choosing a sunscreen product is always a tricky matter for me. As far as I know, Korean brands don’t develop sunscreen products range as vary as they do toward serums, essences, or toners. Thus, I personally have my own limitations and provisos for my options, such as paraben-free, no white cast, minimalist greasiness, etc.

While I was eyeing some options, one of them was ETUDE HOUSE UV Double Cut Fresh Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA++++. I was slightly confused because the review of this product was very scant (maybe because this product was still pretty new), but I finally decided to give this a try due to the convincing claims and advertisement of this product.

[REVIEW] 2019 NEW Missha Time Revolution Night Repair PROBIO Ampoule

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule Review

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule was purchased by Cosmeperks.

This ampoule and I have a history! I was a part of the test group for those percentages you see on advertisements, but it was a blind testing and we didn’t even know the brand. As soon as I received it, just by smelling, I knew it was a Missha ampoule. Maybe I used a lot of them already?

They didn’t tell us it was a night ampoule, so I used it during the day too. Eventually the product was released, and they revealed the name of the blind product. Of course I was so excited to be a part of it, when Nigama asked me if I wanted to review it I didn’t hesitate (I didn’t even check the price) because I was already so in love with it.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Oat Mild Moisture Sun Cream SPF50+ PA+++

Innisfree Oat Mild Moisture Sun Cream SPF50+ PA+++ Review

Innisfree Oat Mild Moisture Sun Cream SPF50+ PA+++ Review:

I’m a total sunscreen junkie and always on the hunt for sunscreens that provide adequate coverage and don’t dry out my already dry skin. I’m trying to delay the aging process for as long as possible and sun is known to be the number one factor in premature aging so I take sun care very seriously!

Innisfree is one of my favorite Korean brands as a lot of their products use natural ingredients such as fruit and vegetables and many of the ingredients in their products come from Jeju Island. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Jeju Island, it’s known as the Hawaii of Korea.

[REVIEW] SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream

SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream Review

SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream Review:

I’ve never thought that using an eye cream is crucial before. For me, it’s just a secondary, even tertiary needs. I personally thought that having enough sleep is the best cure for tired, puffy eyes with dark circles. It’s the same with eye wrinkles – no one could stop your aging skin, including the usage of eye creams. However, those ‘immature’ thoughts were when I still had no problems with my around-eyes skin. I’ve always had dark circles due to sleeping habits since high school era, so it didn’t bother me. But approximately earlier this year, I found some fine eye wrinkles and I panicked! I was only mid 20s and I’m having wrinkles? Uh, a big no!

I realized and decided that I should treat my around-eye skin better. Of course I should repair my sleeping habits, but I guess using outside treatment is gonna help too. Then, I decided to try SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream.

Why SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream out of many eye creams? First, I’ve tried the SECRET KEY Starting Treatment line before (Starting Treatment Essence and Starting Treatment Cream) and both of them worked very well on me. I believe their galactomyces content is somehow works compatible with my skin.

NACIFIC Fresh Herb Origin Sunblock Calendula SPF50+ PA++++ Review

NACIFIC Fresh Herb Origin Sunblock Calendula SPF50+ PA++++ Review:

I was running out of my old Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream No Sebum Sunblock when I ran into this NACIFIC Fresh Herb Origin Sun Block Calendula SPF50+ PA++++. The brand NACIFIC, previously known as Natural Pacific, is famous for its hyped Fresh Herb Origin Serum, and it also claims to use natural ingredients on all their products. Thus, I was intrigued to try this one; does this product do well just like its ‘cousin’ from the same brand?

[REVIEW] Innisfree Moist UV Protection Cream Winter Barrier SPF50+ PA++++

Innisfree Moist UV Protection Cream Winter Barrier SPF50+ PA++++ Review

Innisfree Moist UV Protection Cream Winter Barrier SPF50+ PA++++  was purchased by Cosmeperks.

I was very excited to first hear of a sun cream specific for winter, and even more so when I saw it had a super high SPF. Everyone, and that includes “skin care gods” like Koreans, thinks they are safe in the winter, that the sun will not get them. Here in Korea it’s especially difficult to recognize the difference between a cloudy day or a polluted day – unless you are sensitive, asthmatic, or have an app that gives you air notifications.

So whereas I accept that in cloudy days people may be deceived into thinking the sun “is okay”, here we have more polluted days than cloudy ones. And in the dry winter how can I use the anti-sebum sun creams I use in the summer?

So with a sun cream for this especially difficult season, of course it spiked my interest. Weirdly enough it isn’t as popular here as I thought it would be!
